"This is tradition standing on its head - essential listening" (Irish Times)

"A trippy blend of tradition, psychedelia and hip-hop" (Chicago Tribune)

"Seamless - a groove that is pure Celtic" (Folk Roots)

"They've unquestionably become more experimental, Solar Shears is a quantum jump in production terms for the group. However it's still the elements of banjo/mandolin dueling with Angus Grant's fine fiddle technique which remain the real musical engine room, and is still one of the most refreshing aspects of their whole approach to recording." (The Living Tradition)
